INSPIRING THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS & TEACHERS EACH YEAR
Every year, thousands of students and their teachers experience the ecology of a dynamic coastal system through the school programs offered by Chincoteague Bay Field Station. The Field Station is ideally located on Virginia's Eastern Shore, between the powerful Atlantic Ocean and ecologically important Chesapeake Bay. The barrier islands of the Eastern Shore create a series of close-by habitats that are biologically diverse and geologically dynamic. These natural classrooms introduce students to a variety of concepts in the biological, chemical, and physical sciences.
